Country Jacket Reviewed by Nancy L. Greene on 2013-03-01 ****
I have not knitted a sweater and I also am finding the pockets somewhat difficult. One question when you knit one pocket lining and put it on a holder how long do you cut the working strand. This is a fairly easy sweater to knit but these instructions have confused me a little. I am not a biginner as I have done lace shawls, etc. Just need a little more guidance.

This was my first sweater ever and it went pretty well. Just the right amount of challenge. Although, if I was to do it again, I would alter the pockets and do simple sew on patch pockets instead of these dropped in pockets. I was able to make the pockets work, but they ended up at different heights on the front panels. Which is oat for my first time around with sweater making. The sweater is really warm. I use to wear it out to the school bus stop to get kids to and from school. It's definitely worth giving a try.

I made this jacket in a very short time using Claret Thick and Quick - it turned out to be beautiful. I am little more than a beginner, so I left off the inset pocket because I just wasn't getting it right and made patch pockets for it when I was all finished. This was my first project using this yarn and I love it. It goes so fast and looks very rich. The pattern does run a little large. When I make again I will go down a size.

This was my first knitted jacket. I enjoyed knitting it and actually learned how to do pockets while knitting it. As the previous reviwer said, they are difficult, so I had to look else were to understand what I was going to do... but they came out great! I knitted the smallest size and I am glad I did. The finished object is bulky, heavy and warm, which is great for winter here in Wisconsin. I had to unravel some rows of the finished collar because it end up too long... as I am petite, a collar that is too long makes me look like a clown LOL.

I have made 2 of these sweaters, but the pattern is a little difficult to understand when joining pockets to sweater. The pattern seems to run a little large so the first sweater I made was too large.
I love the yarn and the way the sweater feels and looks. It can be substituted for a coat because it is very heavy and warm. It can be knit in a very short time also. Since the shoulder seams are not at the shoulder, it is difficult to know how long to make the sleeves. I experimented by pinning it all together before sewing it, and that way I could rip out and redo whatever needed
to be done for a good fit. I'm going to make 3 for Xmas gifts.
